Holocaust Memorial Assembly

Monday, 27 January 2020

On 27th January 2020, we gathered as a school for a special assembly in remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust.

Holocaust Memorial Day, or International Holocaust Remembrance Day, is the day that the British Government, alongside many others worldwide, has designated as a day of remembrance for the millions that were murdered by Nazi persecution during the Holocaust. It also remembers those killed through atrocities committed during conflicts in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

We talked about how people suffered racism and hatred and we talked about how we are all responsible for showing compassion and love to everyone we meet in life. We asked for God’s blessing on us all, that we may live out the Gospel through acts of kindness. Finally, we lit a candle and gathered in prayer to remember those who died in concentration camps:

Eternal rest give unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
AMEN

Our Eco-Warriors are on a mission! They did a great job last week selling uniform and old exercise books raising £26 towards the recycling bins we want in school. Keep your eye out for further sales in the future—we have quite a sales team amongst our pupil body!

 

Live Prayer with Archbishop Bernard

LIVE PRAYER WITH ARCHBISHOP BERNARD

On Wednesday, we gathered as a school to join with Archbishop Bernard Longley in praying the Rosary. This special live feed was accessed by nearly 400 schools around the diocese. The Archbishop gave all of our pupils a special  message live from St. Chad’s Cathedral in  Birmingham. In his message, he urged us all to pray for Blessed John Henry Newman who will be canonised in Rome on Sunday. Newman spent much of his ministry in Birmingham. It is very special that he is to be a saint.

 

Reception Reading Workshop

Tuesday, 15 October 2019

Thanks to those parents who were able to attend our workshop last week to find out more about how they support their child’s reading. Feedback was positive and pupils enjoyed the opportunity to work with a parent. As a working parent myself, I fully understand that it can be difficult to attend everything but please remember that other family members are always welcome to attend.
